Radiation effect in sintering process

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The radiation effect during sintering is investigated in this study. The heat conduction with in the solid and radiation within the void is modeled for a unit cell. The heat conduction model is two-dimensional, steady state and constant properties. The radiation is assumed to be grey and diffuse with uniform radiosity. The resulting nonlinear problem is solved by boundary element method (BEM). Local iterative scheme is developed. The algorithm is found to be very efficient. Temperature distributions for different processing conditions (e.g. radius of powder and sintering temperature) are presented. The equivalent thermal conductivity is determined numerically and presented.
